Kanye West wants to expand his legacy with wife Kim Kardashian. On Wednesday, January 1, a source reported that the 42-year-old rapper is encouraging the KKW Beauty creator, 39, to consider adding a fifth child to their family.
“Kanye’s pushing hard for this, and he’s been very vocal about wanting to get things started right away,” the source reported exclusively to RadarOnline.com. “Kanye wants as many blood heirs to inherit his legacy.” The source added that “Kanye and Kim got back on track” with their marriage after welcoming their fourth child, Psalm, 7 months.
In addition to Psalm, the couple are also parents to daughters North, 6, and Chicago, 1, and son Saint, 4. After encountering complications during both of her pregnancies with North and Saint, Kim decided to use a surrogate for her other two kids.
In a touching video, Kim spoke candidly about the difficulties she faced while pregnant. While carrying her daughter North in 2013, Kim had toxemia, which was a serious condition that affected her urine, hands and feet.
“The only way to get rid of toxemia is to deliver the baby. At 34 and a half weeks, I had to go into emergency labor — they induced me. North was 4 pounds. She was almost six weeks early. After I delivered, my placenta never came out, so that’s called placenta accreta. My placenta grew inside my uterus and that is what women die from in childbirth,” Kim recalled.
Two years later, after welcoming Saint, Kim underwent five surgeries to reverse the damage caused by her pregnancy. “I actually had to have five different operations within a year and a half to fix the damage that all of that did from the inside. From the outside, I was filming and doing photo shoots,” she said.
If Kim does give in to Kanye’s request, it would be a change of heart from what she previously said during season 16 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “I feel so complete. I really do feel like four kids is the perfect number for me,” she said. “I feel so full in the best way, but I’m done.”
